There is now, widely available technology that can re-pitch and re-time every sung or played note and create the illusion that a tone-deaf, off-key vocalist or musician, was able to deliver a perfect performance. This means it is now no longer necessary to be able to sing or play with any competence in order to create a coherent song with the help of a good producer. Have you noticed how many previously non-musical actors have suddenly discovered a singing ability in recent years? This is no coincidence.

This unfortunately, also makes it all too easy for talentless "celebs" to create pop records, which devalues the often hard-earned ability to sing and play for real.

There are some amazing performers out there who can do it for real, but to the untrained ear there is little to tell between those who can, and those who require artificial assistance.
